Insulating bib shorts for cold weather riding
Offering warmth and comfort in a lightweight fabric, the Souplesse Thermal Bib Shorts provide insulation without the bulk, perfect for deep winter days. A high waist keeps your core warm and the Super Roubaix® Endurance fabric is quick-drying, and made with hollow fibres that trap warm air close to your body. The bib straps are light and wick away sweat, and a soft gripper features on the legs to keep the shorts secure. An award-winning, supremely padded chamois insert increases comfort, alongside flatlock stitching throughout to help prevent chafing. Wear with Merino Leg Warmers for full leg coverage.
“Again, Rapha has got the fabric weight spot on here. The shorts have a classy, smooth matt outside, which seems to repel mud and slip out of the clutches of brambles. The brushed inside feels soft and cosy, but they don’t cook you like some thicker fleece apparel I’ve worn. Nice air flow means no unnecessary sweat and that is a winning chafe-avoidance strategy as far as I'm concerned.”
